More can be done to reduce carbon footprint, says expert
The chief executive of Siemens has claimed that there are many things people can do to reduce their carbon footprints.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live's Wake Up To Money programme, Alan Wood said there is a "whole spectrum" of steps people can take.
"That really is simple things like insulation - in the home and in buildings - and low energy light bulbs rather than the old incandescent types," Mr Wood claimed.
For factories and commercial buildings, there are "lots of things" that can be done to reduce expenditure on heating during the winter months and cooling during the summer, he explained.
Mr Wood made his comments as Siemens published a new study carried out on its behalf by business consultancy firm McKinsey into the ways that technology can be used to save energy.
The cpmpany claims in 2007 is products and solutions enabled customers to reduce their CO2 emissions by 114 million tones.
